    Medium tyre is right choice in those conditions. Pretty cold.

    According to Motorsport IT, SF71-H (3678) is only 2mm shoter than W09 (3680).

    @ Autosport

    Vettel's been remarkably consistent during this long run on mediums, staying in the 1m21s throughout, whereas Verstappen - who is running a reasonably comparable stint length on the same compound - has been much less metronomic: a 1m21 here, a 1m24 there, then a 1m23. Could be something, could be nothing

    Maybe Mercs have problems with softs again. Explains why they only used mediums last week. Any idea how many laps he did on these?

    I'm not saying it is impressive but he is quicker than Bottas' time on the softs (which is they type of comparison people make on SkySports)

    I believe Hamilton's run was set on a shorter stint.

    Anyone know how many laps Hamilton did in that stint? Seb did it at the end of a long run.

    Other factor track temp. That’s a big varaiable for tyre choice.
    Under cold track, medium & S is tyre choice. Medium tends to work fast n can have long stint on that.
    Softs will take time to work.

    I guess the reason Ferrari was doing most of it's running on the soft tyre, so they can learn more about it

    Well, let’s not forget that this year,s soft is last years super soft, this years medium is this years soft and so on
    Each tire this year is one step softer.....so teams have to learn about their behaviour
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Mclaren broke down NOW it's the RedBull!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    McLaren says latest Vandoorne stoppage was down to loss of hydraulic pressure.

    Mmm it looks like Honda for RB 2019, and we are the only capable to stop Merc for a fifth in a row

    I'm guessing they'll find a way to address that.
